Editors Intelligencer: One of the
most brilliant social events of the sea
son was celebrated on Saturday after
noon, December Otb, at the hospitable
home of Mr, and Mrs. H. J. Armstrong
in the village of Lowndesville, the oc
casion being the twenty-fifth anniver
sary of their happy union in matri
The delightful occasion was d y an -
nounced by the conventional ced in
nil ver print, and at the appointed hour
the home of the devoted husband and
wife WPS filled with loving friends and
relatives. Many were the regrets of
absent ones who were unable to attend.
All nature seemed ic harmony with
the occasion. Instead of a cold, dreary,
winter's day, the hours were calm,
bright and sunshiny, indicative of the
host and hostess who so cordially re
At 3 o'clock the guests were invited
into the large and spacious dining
room. Here, even the Entoure was
more than satisfied. The large room
was elaborately decorated with ivy,
palms and ferns, the. color scheme,
silver and white, being carried out.
The long table groaned under its
weight of turkey, ham, salads, celery,
olives, pickles, etc., etc. After this
course, beautiful women delicately
gave the "finale*' of delicious cakes,
creams and syllabub. In the midst of
such scenes, with the soft glow of the
candle shedding its light upon all, no
doubt many bethought themselves in
the very presence of Hymen, in the
midst of the first nuptials.
Many tasteful and handsome pres
ents were given to Mr. and Mrs. Arm
strong to remind them of the high es
teem in which they are held and to
cheer them on during the remaining
milestones of life's journey.
We wish for them, that although at
the resurrection there shall be no re
lation of husband and wife, and nc
marriages snail be celebrated but the
marriage of the Lamb, yet then shall
be remembered how men and women
passed through this state, which is a
type of that; and from this sacramental
union all holy pairs shall pass to the
spiritual and eternal, where love shall
be their portion, and joy Bhall crown
their heads, and they shall lie in the
bosom of J ecus, asa in the heart of
God, to eternal ages. A GucBt
